On Oct. 11, 2009, a massive landslide uplifted and destroyed a quarter mile of State Route 410 and changed the landscape of the Nile Valley forever.
For three years, drivers traveled along the 35 mph detour through the Nile Valley community.
By August 2012, WSDOT and crews constructed a permanent, 55 mph route along the toe of the landslide.
The restored section of the highway ensures a smoother and reliable drive.
| Economic Incentive
Drivers save up to 20 minutes of travel time on the new route.
Partnerships & Cooperation
WSDOT and the Nile Valley community worked together to complete this project.
Pre-Existing Funds (PEF) $8,795
